Reject MS Form and send back to the requester with the initially entered data

There is a business requirement for which we are looking for solution using forms / forms pro.

The requirements are 

1.   Able to approve / reject forms.  I found that using the Approval action we can create this in Flow today.

2.  On rejection, the form should be sent back to the requester with the filled in data.  Looking into the forum, I see old posts stating it is not available / possible. 


Would like to know if that information is still valid or do we have option to send back the form  with all the data filled in for re-submission.

@Mustaque_Ehiya you can't send the Form itself back to the responder. And Forms can't be pre-filled (unless you are using variables in Forms Pro). All you can do is in the red if no channel, that is the form was rejected, send them an automatic email with the answers they submitted to the questions and ask them to submit a new form.

Hi @RobElliott ,


Can you please help me with a short example on how to pre-populate the data with Forms Pro in rejection mail?

I added a variable, but I am not seeing that in the list and could see only the responses for the form.   How to send a link for the requestor to open the forms pro survey with data prefilled for all qns ?

I can't because I don't have Forms Pro but possibly someone else here in the community can help.
